Supermassive Games found success this generation with the release of its narrative horror title, Until Dawn. The well liked PlayStation 4 exclusive featured lots of Quantic Dream-esque branching pathways, leading to multiple different endings depending on who you managed to keep alive in the mountainside cabin.
This is an area the developer is looking to explore further with its multi-platform Dark Pictures Anthology series, with the first game, Man of Medan, arriving this year. However, the studio has also said it has "several" PS4 exclusives in the works, although we don't know anything about those at the moment.
A new trademark filed by Supermassive has been discovered, and it bears the title 'House of Ashes'. That's as much information as we have right now, but the question is whether this new game is part of the Dark Pictures Anthology, or one of the developer's PS4 exclusive games. The fact the applicant for the trademark is Supermassive Games rather than SIE leads us to believe it's probably the former, but obviously, there's not much to go on.
We'll have to play the waiting game, but in the meantime, what do you think House of Ashes will be? Is it a new exclusive game, or will it be part of Bandai Namco's Dark Pictures Anthology? Rise from the ashes in the comments below.
I’m nervous with them working on so many things at once. Until dawn was awesome but their VR games have been kinda bad, which I’m sure working on so many titles at the same time is partially to blame.
Always interested to see what they get up to. Hope it’s part of the Anthology as that’s a great title for horror. I would love a release date for Man of Medan too. I need more to put on my calendar for the first quarter of 2019.
Until Dawn was a good idea but a bit too Scream/Scary Movie teen-focused IMO. A more adult focused sequel would be appreciated. But keep it in the realm of scary reality... no Silent Hill creatures or zombies. We have other games for that.
Aww man,dont get me started again. They are really beating a dead horse with the man of medan release date. This is a 4 HOUR GAME. There is zero excuses for it to take this long. Lets get man of medan out, before we worry about exactly if house of ashes, is part of the anthology or not.
@Cycologist That was the whole point of the game lol it was focusing on that teen horror type of feel like when you get annoyed at the dumb teenagers and the game gives you a chance to influence those teenagers choices in a good or bad way like they set out what they wanted to achieve if that was your criticism lol
@Cycologist Honestly, I really liked the fact that Until Dawn was a sort of cheesy, campy, 80s-esque horror game. It was kind of refreshing since so many horror games these days take themselves very seriously. I respect your opinion, though.
@jFug @MonkeyDLuffy19 maybe I took it too literal or maybe I'm getting old. Maybe they'll do "Until Dawn for Seniors". Definitely some Stephen King suspense there!!
Until Dawn is probably still my biggest surprise this gen. I loved it.
Yea, sounds like the next one in the series, still preying we get an Until Dawn sequel.
